presents the work of artists from diverse cultures throughout the African continent. In Africa, pottery is usually a woman’s art. Female potters work without the aid of a mechanized wheel, making their achievements all the more impressive. The vessels' superb craftsmanship reflects a deep understanding of the relationship between form and function on the part of their makers as well as a demonstrated aesthetic sensibility. While created for practical purposes, such as storage or cooking, vessels are also used in ritual contexts, particularly those relating to the spiritual realm or marking life’s major transitions. In many African cultures, pots are created to celebrate a marriage and smashed to mark the death of a loved one. The exceptional works on view, all created in the 20th century, testify to the continuing vibrancy of one of humanity’s most ancient artistic traditions.

This exhibition will be on view through
December 31, 2005.
